Thanks for the query,

You might have developed a bacterial infection.

Suture line infection is a common problem.

Apply a topical antibiotic cream like mupirocine.

Also take an oral antibiotic like a third generation cephalosporin.

This will give you relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
